NASA's oldest and most traveled shuttle, the Discovery, made it's way to becoming a museum exhibit Tuesday.  The shuttle left Kennedy Space Center in Florida at dawn aboard a modified jet bound for Washington's Smithsonian Institution.  The Discovery was in space service for three decades.  Pretty incredible to think we basically have no way to get to space anymore.  If we need to visit the International Space Station, I guess we will have to hitch a ride with the Russians.  The shuttle landed in El Paso a few years ago.  It was pretty wild to see a giant jet with a shuttle on it's back fly over I-10.  You can watch the takeoff from Kennedy here.
